mercucial Invocative, yet never overstays its welcome. Under the country style overlay, there is a incredible mix of various styles (jazz, clubs, flamenco, and so on) which lives up to the game's wide range of stories and characters. Favorite track: Curandera.

Raven This song was love at first hear. It contained all the things I loved about folk/bardlike songs: catchyness, complementary male and female voices, acoustic guitar, and a feeling of actual emotion. Favorite track: Heavy Hands.

Well, I got a fire in me Don’t come from up above Yeah I got debts to pay But not the ones you’re thinkin’ of And all of that fame and fortune Bought me a hell of a lot to lose But you ain’t gonna hear my cryin’ ‘Cause I got that Soulsucker Blues Well, I met a man ‘bout town Smile as white as death eyes like rollin’ dice and easy bargains on his breath He said you don’t need that pain, child But how ‘bout somethin’ you could really use? Yeah you ain’t gonna want for nothin’ When you get that Soulsucker Blues Now I got a crater in my chest This hole ain’t gonna heal And the sting of guitar strings is ‘bout the only thing I feel And if there were second chances I don’t know which way I would choose Yeah the thing about “down and out” is I need this Soulsucker Blues

Pues voy a rayar mi nombre En los huesos de la tierra Clavare mis tacones Entre el suelo Porque cuando la calaca regrese A medir mi valor No habrá mucho por hallar Dejado hallado Pues voy a cargar mi pala En mi espalda agotada Voy a guardar mi ruego Entre mi suela Pues cuando mi llama llegue hasta abajo Y a mí tren se le acabe guía No va a ver nadie más Quien cave mi oyó Pues yo No tengo amigo Más que el viento Y el mar I cuando este Frio y falta Estos son Los que me enterraran ¡Que me entierran! Pues, voy a tirar estas piedras Sobre las aguas de esta tierra Y más tardar llegaran fuera de aquí Porque cuando caiga la noche Llega por mí y me toma con el Este será mi cuento Mi Canción del Vago

White Rider 04:23
I was three days’ ride from Tulsa En route to Santa Fe And there beneath the blazing sun My horse began to sway Was then I heard a thunderous sound Come risin’ up behind The hoofbeats of twelve horsemen Their course locked on to mine White Rider White Rider Ain’t fixin’ for to join your fated line White Rider White Rider Don’t come to claim me ‘fore I had my time Was four days’ ride from Tulsa The Riders still in tow They were dressed in white from toe to tip Pale horses trod below And last among their number A chilling sight to see The thirteenth horse lay empty with a saddle meant for me White Rider White Rider Ain’t fixin’ for to join your fated line White Rider White Rider Don’t come to claim me ‘fore I had my time Was five day’s ride from Tulsa When I pitched into the sand My legs gave out, my body lacked the strength enough to stand The Horsemen moved upon me then Their leader to my side Said “Son, I think the time has come To saddle up and Ride.” White Rider White Rider Well, day will come we all will join that line White Rider White Rider They come to claim me now I had my time Now I had my time

Heavy Hands 05:16
If I turn my eyes From these cold blue skies Won’t stay my worry Won’t calm or quell I can say my piece I can barter my tale Won’t ease my burden But I might as well There’s a Heavy Hand Laid across this land And it steers my journey And it guides my pen Press on, head high ‘Til the ink has run dry ‘Cause my story ain’t like To wind home again Well, I’ll beat my drum ‘Til my last day come Or the mountain meets the sea Yeah, the earth will shake But the boughs she break Won’t put no fear in me ‘Cause I see a land on high So I pen my final line Sky will shimmer and sun will shine Where the water tastes like wine Well, I’ve wandered ‘round And there’s a code I found Says a gentle manner And a righteous way This pair you’ll need If you follow this creed She’ll see you through Until the judgement day But there ain’t no law Under tooth and claw In the nest of vipers Or the lion’s den You can holler and wail ‘Til the echo goes stale Ain’t way nor manner Gonna save you then But I’ll beat my drum ‘Til my last day come Or the mountain meets the sea Yeah, the earth will shake But the boughs she break Won’t put no fear in me ‘Cause I see a land on high So I pen my final line Well, stories end and I’m closin’ mine Where the water tastes like wine So when the waters still And you feel that thrill For the open trail Has slipped away When the words won’t flow When your fingers run slow And the song you carry Goes dull and gray. Well, there’s a place I seen Where the soul burns clean And the verse it’s singin’ Rings pure and true So cry no more You just open that door These shores of plenty Gonna welcome you And I beat my drum ‘Til my last day come Or the mountain meets the sea Yeah, the earth will shake But the boughs she break Won’t put no fear in me ‘Cause I see a land on high So I pen my final line I’ve said my fill and I’m feelin’ fine Where the water tastes like wine

about

The original soundtrack for Dim Bulb Games’ Where The Water Tastes Like Wine. Featuring well over a dozen live performers and songs ranging the breadth of American music, from folk to bluegrass to big band jazz. Like America itself, this album is one big story, woven of many small ones.

"Working on this soundtrack has been a dream come true for a lot of reasons. I've always been really interested in how music can change and take on a life of its own as people share it, and getting to explore that idea with WTWTLW's world map theme (which shifts styles and influences depending on where you are in the country) was awesome.

I'm also a big fan of how people from different backgrounds can come together to form one musical culture. I think American Folk music is one of the best examples of that, and writing this soundtrack meant I got to work with a ton of amazing performers from all over the country, including many I've been wanting an excuse to hire for a long time. Working on this game really crossed a lot of stuff off my musical bucket list!" - Ryan Ike
